Care & ageing of ceramic, enamel earthenware
Thanks to the fire cooking CARRON ceramics are unalterable. CARRON items are made entirely of earthenware and can be put in the dishwasher. However, frequent dishwasher passage accelerates the ageing of earthenware. For more precaution we recommend gently handwashing the objects with soapy water and a super soft sponge.
Small cracks, or micro-cracks, which you can possibly observe on the surface of the objects constitute a characteristic specific to the earthenware, related to its ageing. This phenomenon can appear quickly, or after many years. Earthenware remains a product, like wood, subject to temperature differences and does not appreciate thermal shock. You can of course use your mugs for tea or coffee, knowing that the water for a tea is rather around 70°.
Slight variances in shape, size & colour may occur, part of the inherent charm of the CARRON handmade process, every one of the ceramic pieces are unique. Any irregularities that may occur will never deter from the overall aesthetic of the product, or hinder its ability to be used as intended.
